I'm unable to figure out how to access my router when I'm on wifi. Only if I disconnect the router from the modem, and then connect my laptop to the router via LAN, can I access my D-Link router.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Check your router's settings. Several models have an option to enable/disable access by wireless clients (for security reasons).

Edit: with "access" I mean access to the router settings/configuration options.

Dead-on, here. I was about to suggest some advanced work with netdiscover or a similar tool for finding the router, when I noticed the OP said he could get to it on wired connection. This was going to be my next suggestion. – Iszi Jan 23 '12 at 17:23
